Ideal hiking conditions today with a nice breeze and temps in the low 20's.  Ten hikers joined Emily in a hike to McCarthy Falls.  Not a lot of water going over the falls, but given the lack of rain that wasn't a surprise.  PHOTOS

Jean-Guy took us up, up and away on a 9.5 kms hike across the Quirke tailings today.  Marvelous views from "Elk Ridge" and lunch overlooking Dunlop Lake.  Mercifully few bugs thanks to the wind!  PHOTOS

Banana Lake, July 14, 2015

Commentary and photos by Phill B. 
Eight members signed up for the Banana Lake hike on Tuesday, 14th. July. A beautiful sunny day with a good breeze. Plan was to go right around from Dunlop Shores Rd, which meant taking a couple of cars to the far end, off the South Lake trail, to avoid a walk back of an extra 6 km or so. Trail was in good shape and we had lunch on the shore of Banana Lake at the old wilderness camp site.  PHOTOS
